Why not using a y2Xdummy interaction term?

However, if you want to do it that way you could use -suest-. Here is
an example:

*----------------------------------
sysuse auto
reg price mpg if foreign==0
est sto m1
reg price mpg if foreign==1
est sto m2
suest m1 m2, coefl
test _b[m1_mean:mpg]=_b[m2_mean:mpg]
*----------------------------------
